The submissions have been rolling in, and we are so excited by how interesting this contest is turning out to be. I can’t say same for the judges though 🙂 Anyway, just for fun – and maybe, as inspiration for anyone who is having difficulty coming up with a 100-word story – Chisom did this. It’s a 100-word limit flash piece inspired by the picture above. We hope you enjoy reading it; please appreciate him in the Comments below, since he won’t be winning shishi 😉
I pointed at the two-way screen: “Pick one.”
They stood in a line, numbers hanging from their necks: Morgan McCall was 1, Robert Eichinger was 2, Steve ‘Sneak’ Sheera was 3 and Michael ‘the bull’ Lombard was 4.
The procedure was simple. For me. She would pick one and I would question her. From her answers, I would rate him and the other four she had picked from the earlier line-ups. Motive (50%), Relationship (30%) and Crime record (20%).
Whoever scored highest was our killer. Her accomplice.
